The Weller Center for Business and International Studies houses faculty offices and classrooms for the economics, accounting, business management and modern language departments. The $3.9-million building was completed in 1999 and includes state-of-the-art technologies and a very energy efficient design, including solar panels on the roof. There is a 24-hour computer lab on the main floor and eight high-tech classrooms, two of which contain student computers.
Central College has an interactive computer language lab, which can be used by classes and individual students to supplement traditional methods of language learning located in the Weller Center. This lab has 26 student computer stations and a teacher station, with which teachers can organize a variety of conversational activities such as telephone, conference groups and written chat groups. The system allows for use of both digital and analog sound recordings for student listening activities and recording the voices of multiple students at one time.
